You won’t be LEAF this!

15 Jan

Oh, I am a goofball, I love catchy titles!  Leaves, leaves are everywhere, at least in my craft room.  Cheery Lynn Designs is releasaing their DIMENSIONAL LEAVES DIES this coming Monday.  There are 4 sets, D136 Large Leaves 2, D134 Small Leaves 2, D135 large Leaves 1 and D133 Small Leaves 1. 

Head on over to Cheery Lynn Designs Blog to see what the other designers came up with for the DIMENSIONAL LEAVES debut.

Let me stop here to say a couple of words about Cheery Lynn Designs.  If you own a die cut machine, raise your hand.  Wait, that won’t work…I am going to assume most of you do.  Now, if you were to look at your dies what do you like about them?  If I were to answer this, I would have to say that I love the variety, I love the shapes and that there are lots of possibilities with dies.  What I can say about Cheery Lynn Design dies is this: My favorite thing about them is the spectacular detail these dies have.  The new leaf dies are perfect example of this.

To give you a better idea, here is a picture of 2 leaf dies I own from a different die manufacturer.  Cute?  Right?  They have a nice shape and are ok, nothing to do cartwheels about. 

But, now let me show you a Cheery Lynn die cut leaf, cut from the same green paper as the above leaves.

Need I say more?  Here is a picture of all the leaves together, no question which one is Cheery Lynn’s Designs.

 

In honor of the Dimensional Leaves Dies debut, I have made some cards to showcase the versatility of these dies.  Here is just a simple card.  The phrase on the front says: “Just droppin’ you a line”

Here is a close up of the leaves.  I always seem to finish my projects in the middle of the night.  Sorry that there is no outdoor lighting for these.

 

Next, is a Veggie Tales – Dimensional Leaf card.  This is their first collaboration together 🙂

 

Isn’t that great?  The inside says: “Is what I am of you!!”  Then I used one of the Cheery Lynn Expression Collection Embossing dies from the Excellence collection.

 

Now, are you still with me?  I want to make sure you know about 2 contests Cheery Lynn Designs is having.
